Wong Jing's Ghost Busters!
29 September 2004 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Ghost Busting (1986) is a horror comedy starring Wong Jing (he also wrote the screenplay) and it co-stars Joey Wong (as his love interest) and Joyce Godenzi as the tao priestess. The film is a parody of Poltergeist and Ghostbusters along with the evil ghost films of the late 70's and early 80's. This is another strange hybrid from schlock master Wong Jing. The story is about a new high rise office building that's haunted by a ghost patrol of Japanese soldiers from W.W. II. The angry ghosts want revenge and they'll do anything to achieve that goal. Wong Jing plays a goofy maintenance man who's having problems with his job and also romance trouble with his girlfriend (Joey Wong). But those pale in comparison when he learns about the small ghost problem at work.

A funny film that's real hard to find. I found a copy a few years back but it didn't have any subtitles (it was in Cantonese). After a few minutes it was easy to follow. I just couldn't enjoy Wong Jing's script. Hopefully in the future I will be able to enjoy this film if it's ever released again! From what I saw it's worth watching.

Highly recommended.
